774. EEV. EPHRAIM HOLLAND NEWTON 7 (Marshall 6 , Jr., Marshall 5 ,
Obediah 4 , Thomas 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Marshall, Jr., and Lydia (Newton)
Newton of Shrewsbury, Mass., and Newfane, Windham County, Vt., was born
at Newfane, Vt. [at the home of his aunt, and was given the name of her
husband], June 13, 1787. He died at Coila, a village in the town of Cam-
bridge, Washington County, N. Y., October 26, 1864. Burial beside his wife in
Woodlands Cemetery, at Cambridge, N. Y.

He married at Shoreham, Vt., January 29, 1815, Huldah Chipman, eldest
daughter of General Timothy Fuller and Polly (Smith) Chipman* of Shore-
ham, Vt., where she was born May 14, 1789. She died at Jackson, N. Y.,
November 26, 1853. An excellent and devout woman. She was a lineal descend-
ant from John Howland of the Mayflower.

* John Chipman 1 , the immigrant, was "ye only son & Heir of Mr. Thomas Chipman Late
Deceased at Brinspittoec about five miles from Dorchester in Dorsetshire in England," the
said Thomas Chipman owning lands thereabout that were entailed to him and his heirs, the
ownership being contested by relatives of the said John Chipman after the death of his father,
at which time John Chipman was in America and he "Supposeth his age to be about thirty-
seven years : it being next May Twenty & one year Since he came out of England." [Quoted
from an old document.]

John Chipman 1 was "born about 1614, came from Barnstable, Co. Devon, Eng., in July
1631" ; settled in Barnstable, Mass., where he was selectman, deputy, and elder. He died
there April 7, 1708. He m. (1) in 1646, Hope Howland, b. at Barnstable Aug. 30, 1620, d.

youngest was Barnabas 3 , b. 1702. Samuel Chipman-. succeeded to the paternal estate in
Barnstable, which, never conveyed otherwise than by inheritance in the male line, was in
1861 occupied by his descendant of the fifth generation.

Barnabas Chipman 3 , b. March 24, 1702; d. there, a deacon of the church, in 1759. He

1751, Mary Chipman. He m. (3) Alice Howland. A son by first wife was:

Shoreham, Vt., by Rev. J. F. Goodhue.] Stephen Smith married Martha Whelplbt and
had eleven children. The fourth child was roily, who married at Shoreham, Vt., May 24, 1786,
Timothy F. Chipman.

134 NEWTON GENEALOGY

The following sketch of this excellent man I copy from the History of New-
fane, Vt.. but have very much condensed : "He spent his early youth in labor
with his father in the blacksmith's shop. He had a special fondness even then
for books, and determined to acquire something more than a common school
education, and even as he worked his book lying near enabled him to commit
much to memory. At nineteen he taught school in Marlborough, Vt., with suc-
cess. He fitted for college at the school in Newfane, and entered Middlebury
College, October 6, 1806. April, 1810, he united with the Congregational church
at Middlebury; entered Andover (Mass.) Theological Seminary, November, 1810;
completed the course 1813, and was licensed to preach. His first labors were at
Marlborough, Vt. On March 16, 1814, was ordained and installed over that
church, where he continued till January 1, 1833 — a successful ministry, when
many were added to the church. He became pastor of the Presbyterian church
at Glens Falls, N. Y., February 28, 1833, continuing there about three and one-
half years. November, 1836, to August, 1843, he was pastor of the Presbyterian
church at Cambridge, N. Y. In July, 1843, he was elected principal of Cam-
bridge Washington Academy, which post he filled acceptably until August,
1848. Having a fondness for natural science, Dr. Newton early in life gave his
attention to mineralogy and geology. He gathered about 10,000 specimens, which
in 1857 he presented to the Theological Seminary at Andover, Mass. His library
of about i,000 volumes he presented to Middlebury College. 1860 to 1862, he
occupied the pulpit at Marlborough, Vt., — the one where his labors began. About
this time he was elected to the State Legislature of Vermont. While in this
service he was attacked with a severe fit of sickness, from which he never
wholly recovered.

"From his Alma Mater he received the degree of D.D. He was a man of
great industry. In business and as an accountant, he was proverbially accurate.
He was a devoted and faithful minister of Christ. His life was filled with use-
fulness. In the 'Old' and 'New School' controversy, he espoused the 'Old School'
side. He was spare in person, rather tall, of a grave countenance, sometimes
wearing a shade of sadness. But he was cheerful and pleasant in conversation
and intercourse, with a vein of humor."

Mr. Newton's children were all born at Marlborough, Vt. The house which
he built there in 1814, and in which all of his children were born, is still standing,
1912.

born. In 1S77, Mrs. Stevenson removed to Pittsfield, Mass., and erected a
house on the corner of West Housatonic and Elizabeth streets, where
she lived to make glad the hearts of all who knew her for the many years
that remained, her two widowed daughters tenderly caring for her. She
was early in life a member of the Presbyterian church — later a member
of the United Presbyterian and, at Pittsfield, of the Congregational
church — always an active and hearty worker therein. It would please
me to incorporate here the fine memoriam of her published in pamphlet
form, but space will not permit. She joined the Daughters of the American
Revolution, in 1897, the Peace Party Chapter of Pittsfield, in its begin-
ning. She was quite an enthusiastic helper to me in giving data for this

Vt., was born there April 12, 1791, and died at Wardsborough, Windham County,
Vt., March 24, 1864. Burial there, with monument inscribed.



136 NEWTON GENEALOGY

He married at Newfane, Vt., December 25, 1815, Patty Bartlett, eldest daugh-
ter of Capt. William and Azubah (Gleason?) Bartlett* of Newfane, Vt., where
she was born July 11, 1791, and where she died at her home in Wardsborough,
November 28, 1848; "only a few weeks after the death of Aunt Eunice" (Mrs.
Holland).

Sir Isaac Newton 7 was so christened. His burial stone is so inscribed. He
settled in that part of Newfane, Vt., that later became Wardsborough. The house
is still (1906) standing — owned by a man in Boston. Here Mr. Newton's chil-
dren were born. In 1891 not one of these ten children was living in Vermont.

Mr. Newton took an active part in the civic affairs of the town, and evidently
was held in good repute by his fellow townsmen, since they elected and reelected
him to be their Selectman for the years 1831, '36, '38, '39, '40; Moderator of the
Annual Meeting in 1833 ; and Town Clerk for the years 1849 and 1850.

gestion to start some one for the proof or disproof of it. I think it correct : Henri'
Bartlett 1 of Marlborough and Mary Bush of the same place were married there Dec. 6, 1682,
and had there seven children. The second was

138 NEWTON GENEALOGY

He married (2) at Wardsborough, Vt., Deeember 14, 1836, Nancy Tufts, daugh-
ter of Rev. James and Submit (Hayden) Tufts* of Wardsborough, Vt., born May
11. 1811, and died at Newfane, Vt.. December 22, 1896.

Mr. Newton resided in Newfane, Vt., where his children were born. The
house that he built is occupied by his daughters, the Misses Fanny and Mary
Newton, who have always lived there.

Three of Mr. Newton's sons were soldiers in the Civil War.

Mr. Newton was a trusted citizen of his town and vicinity. I quote the
following from the History of Newfane, Vt. It is a good record for any
man to leave behind him in his home town. It is written of him : "He had
more than ordinary intelligence and good sense. He was modest and unobtrusive
in his deportment; exceedingly practical in his views; respected for his judg-
ment. He was for forty years honored with the most important municipal offices
in the gift of his townsmen. He represented the town in the General Assembly
two years [1847, 1856] ; was high sheriff of the county one year, and for six
consecutive years' was elected and served as Assistant Judge of Windsor (Vt.)
Court. At the time of his decease he was Treasurer and Deputy County Clerk.
During the last years of his life he was largely engaged in the execution of
responsible trusts growing out of the settlements of estates. From his own
ample means he distributed his charities with a liberal and open hand. He
was greatly respected while living and sincerely mourned at his decease."

The years he was Selectman were 1847, 1850, 1851, 1852, 1853, 1855, 1860.
During those years he was Moderator of the Annual Meeting in 1854, '55, '59,
